Question Waiting for "pxl.ibpxl.com" ?

Most times when a page on FT is loading although the page does load in full eventually - it lags at the last part and shows on Firefox at the bottom left as "Waiting for pxl.ibpxl.com"

Any idea what this pxl.ibpxl.com is?

sounds like a tracking pixel
Code:
<!-- IB PIXEL -->
<script type="text/javascript"> pxlSiteFile = "flyertalk.com.js"; pxlScriptStart = '%3Cscr' + 'ipt type="text/javascript"'; pxlScriptEnd = '%3C/scr' + 'ipt%3E'; if (location.protocol.indexOf("https") == -1) { document.write(unescape(pxlScriptStart + ' src="http://pxl.ibpxl.com/'+pxlSiteFile+'"%3E'+pxlScriptEnd)); } else { document.write(unescape(pxlScriptStart + ' src="https://pxlssl.ibpxl.com/'+pxlSiteFile+'"%3E'+pxlScriptEnd)); }
</script>
<!-- /IB PIXEL -->

I'm none the wiser.

What's one of them when it's at home?
